Perhaps a cloth towel? Lil paper bits are never fun when you put them on something that is going to heat up ,)

Just use a lint-free cloth (which would probly only end up being a paper towel) , get some nail polish remover or WD-40, but it on the rag, then when the rag it pretty damp from the liquid, gently rub the excess off the GPU.

Be very carefull though, you don't want any of it to go ll over the card or worse, in the GPU.

BUT if that does happen, finish cleaning your card, then set it in a warm place overnight (or more) to let it dry.

One thing though. This is on a Radeon8500 right? Why did you switch heatsinks? People are obtaining 310+ core 315+ram with stock, rock stable! I guess it's just for bragging rights :cool:

I play on a very expensive violin, right now worth around 30,000, and I use a silk cloth to clean it. If you need delicacy, get that. You could also use a plain instrument cloth made of cotton. I also like the instrument custom cloths you can order. They gather evrything.
